We believe in the power of culture. One that drives loyalty and advocacy. In other words, we help brands create their own cult-like following.
As markets become further saturated due to rapid globalisation and technology, brand differentiation is crucial to survival. Through culture-aware branding, we let customers do the talking about your brand to drive brand loyalty, advocacy and customer retention.
When brands are culturally aware of the nuances, beliefs and values of their customers, they can begin implementing an experience that better accommodates the needs of customers and employees.

Why we're Monale.
Monale (monn-nal) came to fruition with a unique story of cultural adversity. Our founder, Mariam Rehman, was studying Accounting and Finance in Wagga Wagga, NSW when the desire to push against the odds sparked curiosity. She always felt that her potential was being limited to her geographical location. Where thinking inside of the box was the only way to move up the social and corporate ladder. Creative thinking wasn’t encouraged, rather staying limited to outlines, rules and guidelines was celebrated.
In 2018, she visited Pakistan for a family holiday and attended a lunch at a restaurant called Monal in Lahore. It was there she decided to leave her degree and pursue a vision of creativity. One where business and creative skill is required to maximise and drive growth.
Mariam still resides in Wagga Wagga where she leads teams across Australia and is on a journey to inspire others to achieve growth through creative thinking, wherever they are. Our Vision is to grow Australian communities and businesses by encouraging diversity of thinking, perspectives and skill.

What we believe in.
We don’t get bogged down in the way things have always been done. We’re too focused on looking forward and making things happen. Our approach is level-headed business meets, "what if?"
Real relationships come with true transparency. It’s not about being nice . It’s inviting everyone to contribute brain cells towards one shared journey, even if it isn't always pretty. At Monale, we like to think of it as strategy you can see.
We bring unbiased strategic and creative solutions to grow our partners' brands. We’re not trying to be another Big Four. And we’re not one-size-fits-all mainstream either. We're about making the point quickly. Talking less. And listening more.
